Good stuff, ysckyler. 

One thing I liked was his point on "realistic goals".

thumbs-up

Me too amuse I like what he said about the Brules that we created for ourselves. How many lies we were fed to believe we cannot be who we want to be? So after watching the video, I created my own bucket list and start working towards it. 

I think this site is great, and not only a place to share our passion but also a place to motivate each other to achieve our goals!!!

I think the list, as described in the vid, can be a good one for musicians.  I made one, and keep it where I see it regularly, to stop and think sometimes if I am on track with personal goals or if goals need revision.

 

His method for generating a bucket list is a bit more.. shall we say altruistic(?) then some I've seen.  So far as I understand it, it is supposed to be a list of all the things you would *like* to somehow do before you "kick the bucket".  His methodology is maybe a bit more enlightened than some, and also a bit more oriented towards actual goal achievement than what I have seen on some bucket lists.  LOL

But for musicians or any artist, having some goals (realistic or not) beyond just learning the basic skills of the art is good, I think. If you shoot for the moon, you may never actually hit it, but you will usually go higher/further than if you aimed lower and more realistically. 

Again, this is good stuff, ysckyler.  It is easy to get caught up in the nuts and bolts of techniques and scales and pieces and not have even a "fantasy" sort of direction.  That can lead to days where you go to pick up the instrument, and you can't think of any good reasons *why* to do it.  That's how a lot of people drop out.  Even an
"unrealistic" goal is a far better motivator then nothing.
